Complete Mechanical, Inc. has your HVAC savings in mind, and we can help you check your energy star installation for 2016 tax credit. One of the 2016 tax credits will be installation of new Energy Star appliances and energy saving devices. Read the description and check the Federal Tax Credits for Consumer Energy Efficiency website. They display in bold “Not all Energy Star certified products qualify for a tax credit.”
With that said, if you are planning an upgrade to your home selecting Energy Star items usually means that the product will give good service with a considerable energy savings. Depending upon the item, the tax credit will be ten percent of the cost (not including installation) up to $500. Certain items are worth a specific credit amount ranging from $50 – $300. The items must be installed in your principle residence, which is owned by you. New construction and rentals do not count. Installation that does count includes biomass stoves that burn trash or wood, specific HVAC units, and heat pumps – to name a few. Certain types of insulation, roofing, water heaters, doors and windows might also qualify. Heat pumps are certainly a favorite since, because they move heat rather than generate it, they can save up to 75 percent of the energy used by conventional heaters and air conditioners.
